Racism

Question of the Day ~ 12th December, 2014 ~ Are You Racist?

The recent high-profile deaths of black people at the hands of police officers have exposed sharp differences about race relations in unexpected and often uncomfortable ways.
If you are so inclined, please read this VERY informative article –
Are You Racist ?
Then, comment here. I promise to share some of the important understandings I received when I read the article myself.

Did the IAT – pleased to report a result of “little or no automatic association”.

I have grown up in mixed race communities all my life, and have always had non-white neighbours and friends, so my neural networks seem to have no significant implicit racism.

And New Zealand is a much more egalitarian society than the US, and we still still have our share of racial issues. Not everyone is like me, and many are.
